Parade of Homes

While we were in Utah visiting, Diane took Alyssa and I to see a few of the Parade of Homes houses. They are kind of like model homes but they are custom houses and usually have some really cool additions.

Like this craft room, I love all the baskets to keep everything organized and easily accessible.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a gym at home?

I absolutely LOVE this closet! I think having the washer and dryer in the closet is a fabulous idea!

I really liked this outdoor barbeque/kitchen and check out the lovely view!

Happy Birthday Lauren!

We're still in Utah visiting the family for the weekend. Today we got to celebrate Lauren's birthday! She turned 20 this year. I remember when I turned 20, that was a long time ago and lots of things have changed since then. Anyway, back to Lauren, it was to be here to celebrate this year with her. I hope that you had lovely birthday, Lauren. Here are a couple pictures from the day.

Oh Clementine

It was funny when we first got to Hurricane, we called my dad to tell him that we were in town. He asked us to come pick him up because he was walking home from the high school basketball game and that he had a surprise for us. We went over to get him and as we pulled up we noticed that he was carrying purse with a pink blanket hanging out of it. If you know my dad, you know that he is not the type that generally carries a purse (ruffled sheets...yes,, when we got in the car we realized he had precious cargo, an adorable puppy. My Dad and Diane got a new labrador puppy! Her name is Clementine and she's absolutely adorable! We've had a lot of fun playing with her while we've been in Utah visiting them. Here are some pictures of her.
